Well, after all my blog cruising I was inspired to use the time while the baby was sleeping to start making a 'real' dinner. I shouldn't have bothered. I had left over steak, so I decided stir-fry with that would be good. Only did you know that canned chicken broth has milk and eggs in it? At least the stuff that I had on hand did. So I tried to make rice pilaf with water. I cannot make rice. The only rice that I succeed at is rice from a box. So that failed.

And the stir-fry? Perhaps I was just a little bit to free with the soy sauce, I don't know but it was not so good and almost too salty - even for me! The sugarsnap peas were good.

Oh well...at least it kept me busy for a bit!

(And see? I finally remembered to take a picture!)

That looks really yummy! I love stir-fry. (and I always seem to overdo the soy sauce, too..)

Whaddya MEAN ya can't cook rice?

I can't much cook, but can I offer you a rice recipe?
Put the rice (I like "converted" best,) in a pan with asome olive oil, or margarine or browned butter.
Stir and heat it until all the grains are coated.
Put in twice as much water (or bouillon, or half water and half cream sherry or wine,) and S & P to taste.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and put timer on for 20 minutes.
